Designed with ease-of-use in mind, connecting devices and accessing apps is effortless, while navigation is made simple with a 6.8cm colour LCD touchscreen. Without the need for a PC, print and scan to and from the cloud for easily shareable, securely stored digitised documents.

Efficiency doesn’t stop with the Business Smart’s time saving features, the entire range offers the lowest cost of ownership in its class, with optional high-yield inks and individual ink cartridges that mean you only need to replace the empty ones. And if you’re a business with an eye on the environment, the automatic 2-sided print can reduce unnecessary waste by up to 75%, while the smart scanning feature skips blank pages, capturing only the information that matters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I've recently switched from an HP product to this printer. Set up is very intuitive, print quality is excellent and ink optimisation better then I found on the HP product. Scanning is on par with most devices in this price range. I experience some problems when I upgraded to Window's 10. It didn't t recognise the printer and I had to restore windows 7. This however was not a fault of the printer but rather the upgrade suite as I couldn't even print to PDF's. So I'm delighted with the printer and would recommend it to anyone looking for an printer/scanned that offers above average performance with reasonable running costs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from reliable and robust A great printer for the price. May be a bit dated now, and the ability to fax rather puts it back into the 20th century but the print quality is good, the ink is (as always) overpriced, but lasts longer than most. The age should not put you off however as I am still getting great service out of a fairly ancient Brother laser which is much older. Wifi is efficient, not sure about the scan, and other buzzes and bells as I have not as yet got round to needing to use them, but have high hopes they will be there and efficient when I need them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than my last printer I had a different printer for some time which suited my needs or so I thought. Along came Windows 10 and my needs changed considerably. First and foremost I needed a printer to be compatible with W10, non luck would have It my previous printer was the only model not compatible. My MFCJ5320 was purchased after a long shopping expedition on line and elsewhere. I was certainly well pleased and surprised after switching it on for the first time.So easy to install, so quiet, so neat, excellent print quality, good design features, economic ink usage. I am so pleased with myself in choosing what I feel is an excellent product, even my wife loves it because it prints EACH & EVERY time wirelessly from her front room laptop position. Idiot proof good product I reckon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good printer We needed to replace our old printer and this printer was recommended by our local computer shop. It's great to be able to work downstairs on the ipad or laptop and print off upstair

Rated 5 out of 5 by from purchased in Nov from an independent retailer Bought to replace a competitors personal printer which after 4 years consistently experienced paper jams. Although it may seem overkill to use as a personal printer it is a very robust medium size printer which can easily sit under a desk, with low noise level when printing and print quality satisfactory with numerous print quality options. Easy to set up (even for a non IT savvy person) by opening up the link provided. Although I had a paper jam it was my fault, which I easily unjammed by following the instruction manual ( do not follow the info on the printer screen as it gives a very poor description). Although only bought a few weeks ago I am very satisfied with this purchase, and although there were cheaper options offered by the retailer this one had good reviews and looks / feels robust enough to last a few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great home-office all rounder I previously had an HP Officejet machine in the office which was fine, but heavy on expensive ink and with flaky WIFI. Having also had a smaller brother printer that has given four years of sterling service, I thought I would replace the HP with this little gem when eventually its print heads failed. So far I have been delighted , with easy set up, great print quality and top notch scanning software I'm as pleased as punch - and all at a very good price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good multifunctionality This was the easiest printer I have owned to set up and it just works. It is easy to use from all my devices and the double-sided printing is very good. I like to print documents as pamphlets and this printer does ghis with ease. On the downside it's pretty slow and pictures are just so so. Printing on A3 is a bit fiddly but the self feed for copying is very robust. All in all great functionality for the price and I am now a Brother concert.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast and usefull printer After the complications of putting it together and inserting the paper, which is not at all logical (would have gotten 5 stars otherwise) I have found this printer to be a great piece of kit. I use it for printing Autosketch drawings, and when it has sorted out the page it prints very quickly indeed. I have not tried the fax as I don't need it, but the copy facility is good, as is the scanner.. One of my better purchasers
